PRODUCT STRATEGY

Our PHILOSOPHY

CULTURE AND CONTEXT CENTERED DESIGN

Workplace competency assessment solutions for personal and professional development are used across Africa. These solutions can be very valuable for companies and individuals, if they are applied correctly. From my experience I know that this is not the case. None of the solutions I found, take into account the African culture and the development context in their design. We therefore have to challenge the assumptions behind the tools, their application and results.

Na-zanga is a given name from the Mambwe people in the Northern province of Zambia; it means to discover or to find the solution, to what you have been seeking.

Zanga African Metrics uses technology to develop online human capital development solutions that are adapted to the African culture and context, thereby increasing the relevance, impact and sustainability of the results. Our solutions are scalable across businesses, and countries.

We join forces with those at the frontline of innovation in Africa; those who are realizing the development aspiration for the continent and its people. 

VISION 

 A world where African SMEs create wealth beyond their generation. 

VALUES

  1. Ubuntu – I am because you are, you are because I am.

  2. Purpose – I was created to respond to a need in the world for my generation.

  3. Professionalism – I do my best and I do it well.

  4. Passionate – I believe in and enjoy what I do.

  5. Life learner – I am always learning and co-creating my success.

  6. Integrity – I do what’s right irrespective of the consequences.
